    I have only been playing with this thing for about a couple of hours now. Mainly, I want a decent backup tool for files and email. I've set up scheduled tasks to test both of these aspects. What I see so far is:

    1. Cannot backup up Outlook 2000. TrueImage just crashes.

    2. Assuming this gets fixed, will there be a provision for .pst files that are password-protected? It would not be good for a scheduled task hang while waiting for the password ...

    3. The file backup seems okay so far.

    4. Restoring has problems. If I do restore *all*, it looks okay. But if I choose to restore particular files or particular directory branches, then I only get partial results. Many files/folders get omitted.

    Is this in line with what the rest of you are seeing?

    I intend to do more testing , but based on what I see right now, I am inclined hold on to my money. The user interface is very nice, but the results are not encouraging ...

    Hello EdB,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    We are sorry for the delayed response.

    Sharing your experience is very much appreciated. If you have any further experience to share, please feel free to post it on this forum.

    Please be aware that this issue is known already. It will be fixed in the next build of Acronis True Image 10.0 Home. We are going to release the next build in the nearest future. Please accept our apologies for the current inconvenience.

    Please note that in order to back up messages, user accounts and settings of Microsoft Outlook you do not need to provide the password. The password is set for Microsoft Outlook itself.
